What Others Say About The Book

“To boldly go beyond ‘pages.’ That’s the universe of modern design, and there’s no better guide to exploring it than Brad Frost. In Atomic Design, he replaces our outdated, closed workflows with exciting new collaborative ones, and teaches us to design not just pages but systems. Recommended for all web and interaction designers.”

— Jeffrey Zeldman, author, Designing With Web Standards


“Brad is suggesting that we’d be better web designers if we thought of what we’re building as a system. A hierarchical system that fits together to form larger parts. Because, spoiler alert, it is and we would be.”

— Chris Coyier, CSS Tricks

What Others Say About The Book

“Smashing Book #5 has completely changed the potential for books around the web. This thing is ridiculous in how it dives deep into a topic and continues to dive deeper until you feel as though your brain might explode from the knowledge.

Smashing Book #5 is now your RWD bible. Stop searching, buy this book, and spend a weekend filling your brain with the most useful, technical information on RWD you can find anywhere.

And that’s what is most impressive to me about this book. It’s no different than sitting in a work environment with these authors and seeing how they get the job done. When you are trying to get into this field you are often left on your own to figure things out.”

— Paul Scrivens, Smashing Book 5: Review


“Smashing Magazine’s fifth book is everything I've come to expect from the productions of Freiburg’s finest: Extensive, in-depth and beautifully rendered. But best of all it is wise; unafraid to step back from technicalities and take in the bigger picture.

This isn’t just a book about how to do responsive design, but about what it really is and what it really means. So many web design books are mere manuals. This is a great deal more.

— Heydon Pickering
